So I have a quick question about wiring a downpayment gift. Is there any reason I can’t have the relative transfer the gift to my account, and then I transfer it to the title company during closing? The relative is only in town one more day before they go back to their job that takes them away from home for months at a time (and they use a small community bank so I don’t think they really provide any wiring services online).
I figure this would require some extra documents/bank statements from the relative giving the gift, but they’re fine with that.
Thoughts? And thank you!
